I .«£ 4L. The Town of IPSWICH Massachusetts 1972 ANNUAL REPORT * "A friend " "Dedicated " "Always available and cooperative. ■ • • • "The best friend we ever had ". . . .the late chief donned a miniature uniform as fire department mascot some 50 years ago. ..." Every chiUt dream - a fire suit and pony. "Buddy started as a boy dreaming of becoming fire chief someday and lie did it, and I call that true success. He was a damned good firefighter." These words of Fixe Captain Harold Wile seemed to sum up the unusual career of the late Russell Scahill this week - unusual not because he was a good fireman, but because he lived to do what he liked most. Born across the street from the fire station, it must have seemed prophetic when the late chief donned a miniature uniform as fire department mascot some 50 years ago to sit in the lead engine in Ipswich parades. Even more so 16 years ago when Frank O'Malley tapped Mr. Scahill on the shoulder and told him he had been unanimously elected fire chief by the board of selectmen. An indication of the esteem in which his fellow townsmen held him came nine years ago wheri the town meeting voted Chief Scahill life-time tenure - something the town has not seen fit to confer on any other official. It was an appropriate honor for a man whose life revolved around service to the town for 43 years - as a member of the forestry department, the water department, the highway department, and for 31 years, the fire department. "Buddy" Scahill did what he wanted to do most, and he did it to the best of his ability - at any time of day or night. For little boys who dream impossible dreams, the career of "Buddy Scahill should provide hope. Excerpts from the IPSWICH CHRONICLE, May 18, 1972 The late Anthony Murawski. Town Clerk, swears in "Buddy" to the position of fire chief. Because he loved to see the twinkle in childrens' eyes, Buddy played Santa Claus. Would you help ?

In answer to a question raised by Mr. John Prosser, Mr. Damon stated that the costs mentioned in the motions were absolute. The only cost in addition to present operating costs would be heat. Electric heat is being proposed and would entail a slightly higher cost, an estimated $400.00 per year as opposed to a present average of $20-$30 per month.

Mr. Cornelius Cleary asked for a yes vote on this article stating that it did not relate to PCD as a zoning concept but asks to change this specific piece of property to RRA. Mr. William Thoen stated that the Planning Board did not recommend this article, and the Planning Board thought the present PCD developer would not go away even if this article were passed. Finance Committee does not recommend this article, and the Board of Selectmen voted against recommendation of this article. Mrs. Sally Weathcrall, Chairman of Conservation Commission, stated that they did not take a vote, but that her committee was concerned about water and density of the PCD. Mrs. M. L. Scudder, Chairman of the School Committee, urged the Planning Board to support this article. Mr. Charles Rose requested the vote of the Selectmen and Finance Committee.

Mr. Ed Michon stated that he was in favor of the article and opposed to PCD and its effect on the school system. Town Counsel Dale Vincent said the only effect an affirmative vote would have would be to accelerate the building. He further stated that he was aware of no damage to the water shed as yet. Mr. Bill Markos, Finance Committee, spoke opposing the article. He said the PCD economically makes good sense, but the zoning by-law (concerning PCD) is not as good as it should be. Mr. Charles Shultz asked the Planning Board questions on building permits and cesspools if the area is reverted back to RRA. Mr. Jason Sokolov answered yes, the building inspector would either issue or withhold a building permit for each house; and Mr. Thoen answered yes, each house would have its own cesspool if the area were reverted back to RRA and one-acre zoning. Town Manager Richard Conti, in answer to Mr. Brad Lucas' question about the "Coca Cola" water, stated that the colored water could not be attributed to the PCD. This problem is caused by old water pipes and activity in building sewers. Mr. Charles Rose ^discussed a sewerage problem if the PCD is completed.

Mr. Bill Markos, Finance Committee, felt that conflict of interest was being hinted. He asked voters not to be 20 fooled and to vote against this article. Mr. John Bialek, former Selectman, then spoke in favor of this article, and Mr. John Markos, one of the developers of apartments on Topsfield Road, spoke against. Mr. Thoen advised voters that the passing of this article would not prohibit the Markos development. At Mr. Thoen's request, Town Counsel Vincent clarified a point on Planning Board approval. He stated that the General Laws require the Planning Board to stamp a perimeter plan "Planning Board Approval Not Required" if that perimeter plan does not show any subdivision and if the required frontage is allowed. Mr. Hollie Bucklin then warned that the point of the amendment was being lost, that it was not personal. And Mr. Bialek, referring to Planning Board approval, suggested that there may be too much permissiveness. The motion was carried with 417 voting in the affirmative, 175 in opposition. A two-thirds vote or 394 was needed.

No structure shall be less than three hundred (300) feet from any dwelling. Exterior lighting shall be limited to the minimum required for safe access and egress. Seconded. Mr. Marciano spoke briefly in favor ot this article. Mr. Prosser gave the Planning Board's reasons for opposing this article; and Mr. Markos said the Finance Committee appreciated work of the Industrial Commission, but they must agree with the Planning Board in opposing this article. Mr. Tom Emery said that good land must be made available, and Mr. Cobb said the Selectmen agreed but they were not convinced that this was the proper way to do it at this time. Mr. Paul Gahm said he favored an ice rink concept in Ipswich, but he thought this article was poorly conceived and poorly written, and requested that voters defeat it. Mr. Angelo Perna also spoke in opposition of the article suggesting that some specific areas ought to be made available for consideration. Messrs. John Bialek, Fred Paulitz, and James Daly then spoke urging that voters vote in favor of this article. The motion was defeated with 123 voting in the affirmative, 275 in opposition. A motion was made and seconded that the Meeting be dissolved. Carried by voice vote. The Moderator declared the Meeting dissolved at 10:20 p.m. ATTEST: HAROLD G.

Cobb, Jr. (House of Hinlinj BOARD OF SELECTMEN Joseph A. Navarro, Chairman Elizabeth S. Cole Charles K. Cobb, Jr. Paul J. Gillespie Edward Kozeneski The year 1972 was an eventful one for Ipswich. With hard work and diligent effort by the Board of Selectmen, the Town Manager, Finance Committee, Treasurer and Assessors, we were able to hold the tax rate stable. The cooperative attitude that these groups display in working together should be and is appreciated by the Selectmen. Early in the spring we received a most distinguished visitor, His Honor William Mulley, Mayor of Ipswich, England. He was most impressed with our community and by the hospitality afforded him by all who met him. ^^^ We undertook a two year sewer extension to complete the core area of town. Most of the extensions have been completed in the first year, thereby realizing a savings to the town. The Manager and Public Works Director are to be commended for their fine work in this area. We received our first Revenue Sharing Checks and are hopeful that these monies will help to ease the strain on the overburdened taxpayer. The coming year will be one for belt-tightening, as we are faced with the financial burden of the Whittier Vocational School and the changeover to the fiscal year. While the impact appears to be serious, we, along with the Finance Committee, are working hard to reduce our own spending wherever possible. We were also pleased during this past year that our Annual Town Report won prizes in the Massachusetts Contest and in the New England wide contest as well. Congratulations are in order in particular to Town Manager Conti, Connie Chisholm and Jaye Farquhar for the effort they put forth. 22 List of Jurors Drawn in 1972 Helen E.

Nikas Jason A. Sokoiov Curtis R. Tuttle A critical observer will have noticed a planning policy this year which was designed to involve as many residents of the Town as possible in the planning process. Volunteer citizens, acting collectively as a Planning Advisory Committee (PAC), with the Planning Board and Nash-Vigier Inc., Consultants, produced a questionnaire which was sent to 3,400 Ipswich residents. The questionnaire sought opinions about problems facing the Town and views and desires about the future of Ipswich. 600 questionnaires were returned; their results are included in a "Problems and Opportunities Report" by Nash-Vigier, Inc. submitted November 16, 1972. Broadly, the survey indicated a strong desire for a limited, controlled growth, and for preservation of the Town's historic and rural characteristics. A tentative Master Plan, embodying these attitudes is being prepared and is expected to be completed early in 1973. In other planning activities, the Board is working with the Conservation Commission on a Wetlands and Watershed Conservacy District By-Law; has commenced work on revising Subdivision Regulations; and is working towards sponsoring a Signing By-Law revision originated by the PAC. Subdivision work continued throughout the year: In May, the A. B. Clark II subdivision, 37 lots, was submitted, however, in June it was dissapproved. In August, Mr. Neil St. John "Ted" Raymond discussed a proposal to build 280 units in 184 acres; Radice Realty submitted a preliminary plan for an 1150-unit Planned Community Development (PCD) on 340 acres: and the Scott Hill Subdivision was rescinded. In September, the PCD preliminary plans were withdrawn and later resubmitted; and preliminary plans for Bayview, a 302-unit subdivision off Topsfield Road was submitted. In November, the Bayview preliminary plans were approved; final agreements on the Meadowbrook Subdivision were concluded; and the remaining lots in the A. B. Clark I Subdivision were released. In December, the Board heard an informal presentation of plans to develop 138-units on 29 acres off Jeffery's Neck Road by the Archdiocese of Boston. Negotiations with the Radice Realty Corp. on the PCD are continuing, the board having extended the time limit 90 days. In October, the Planning Board held public hearings on three zoning articles scheduled for a special Town Meeting, and reported to not recommend all three. Planning Board membership changes during the year: In August, Mr. William H. Davis III resigned; in October, Mr. Curtis R. Tuttle was appointed to fill Mr. Davis' unexpired term.

Maciejowski Hollie A. Bucklin, Jr. Sharon Josephson — Associate Member In 1972 the Board held thirty-nine duly advertised public hearings. This is a record number, exceeding the previous record of twenty-six hearings held in 1960. Of the thirty-nine petitions, twenty-seven were granted, three were withdrawn, and nine were denied. Of the twenty-seven petitions granted, thirteen related to additions to existing buildings, four related to lot sizes, three concerned conversions of existing uses, two permitted conversions of existing dwellings to three -apartment dwellings, two permitted the keeping of horses for family use, two permitted construction of single family dwellings in a Limited Industrial district, and one permitted temporary occupancy of a trailer. Of the nine petitions denied, five involved apartment houses, two involved building additions, and two related to lot or yard size. The first appeal to District Court of a Board decision was filed in 1972. The Board was affirmed by the Court. There have been previous appeals to Superior Court (at least one of which is still pending) but a recent law now also permits appeals to District Court. The Zoning By-law was amended at a Special Town Meeting late in the year to exclude apartment houses from permitted uses in industrial districts. After the Annual Town Meeting, the Board of Selectmen reappointed James Theodosopoulos as a member, reappointed Hollie A. Bucklin, Jr., and appointed Sharon Josephson as Associate members. Later in the year, Julius Kaszuba resigned and Hollie Bucklin was appointed to fill his place. At the close of the year, an Associate member vacancy existed. * in < LU Q. < Li. o Q < O O N * TOWN MANAGER Richard N. Conti Government has the responsibility to plan ahead and set goals for future accomplishment. Since government is a combination of all the interactions within any community including social, economical, political and personal; planning ahead and setting goals is no stranger to each individual citizen of Ipswich. Without planning and goal setting, community and personal life tends to exist as a shapeless and undirected ameoba. In 1971 I suggested various goals designated for immediate and future accomplishment. The following advancements in achieving those goals set forth in the 1970 Annual Town Report are: 1. Enhancing the availability of town officials to the public. For the past year the Board of Assessors has been meeting each Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. to hear complaints and receive petitions for abatement. Also the Town Clerk and Veteran's Agent are available each Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Commencing Thursday, February 01, 1973, these offices will change evenings to Thursday from 6:00 to 9:00. 2. The development of the Limited Development Corporation will encourage 'clean' industry and commercial enterprise to locate in Ipswich. This should lead to more jobs for the unemployed and a widening of the Town's tax base. This has occurred with excellent cooperation between the Economic and Industrial Development Commission and the Chamber of Commerce. 3. Resolution of the Town long-range water needs through examination of the 30B site. In late 1972 the Commonwealth engaged engineers to survey and take test borings within the 30B site. A report will be rendered in early 1973 and should indicate the feasibility or not of the proposed reservoir project. 4. Strengthening of Public Safety through police investigation. With the addition of a permanent police investigator more crimes have been solved and cases successfully brought to court. Since the crime rate dropped in Ipswich during 1972, we can assume that good investigatory work combined with increased patrolling were positive deterrants to crime in 1972. As we achieve accomplishments, the community generates new situations and problems which become the goals of tomorrow. Some things are yet unresolved such as P.C.D., Historic District Development and Atomic Power. o Q_ LU LU < O 1- 25 u During the year good progress was made on the Master Plan effort. A survey was conducted and numerous Master Plan Advisory Committee meetings were held. For those citizens who have not participated at this point, it is not too late. As the Master Goals are being developed in early 1973 it is imperative that we receive maximum citizen input. Due to the planning efforts during the past year it appears that the community desires a policy of ungrowth. What does this mean? It does not mean no growth, but controlled and guided growth designed to be advantageous to the preservation of basic community values and life. We must preserve our historic and natural heritage through restoration and preservation. Also we must have the means to do this in an unburdening fashion. We must align our priorities with reality. This means being considerate of all people and all interests in the community. Let us ask everyone, and let us all participate in creating the true future community. We do not want to have a 'melting pot' of ideas and interaction as much as we want a 'mosaic' of ideas, people and interaction. In a mosaic each tiny piece retains its own color, texture and proper identity. It never melts or fuses into pieces next to it. Once completed, the beauty and richness of the entire mosaic is that a new and larger entity has been created without the destruction of any of the distinctive beauty of the constituent pieces. Again this year we were fortunate in having an administrative intern during the summer. Robin Carter worked with the Town under the Emergency Employment Act. He performed extensive records research work for the Town Clerk, and coordinated the Town role in Olde Ipswich Week. As we look into the future, there are some very obvious immediate needs to be fulfilled: 1 . Completion of the 1 .5 mgd Sewage Treatment Plant. 2. Formalizing the structure of the Town's Recycling Program to attain a more effective impact. 3. Cleaning and cement lining of all iron water mains to effectively eliminate all 'red water' problems. 4. Restructuring of the subdivision control regulations utilizing past experience to tighten controls on developers. 5. Operation of a full time Building Inspector's Office to work closely with the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals in achieving strict building code and Zoning compliance. 6. Establisliment of a Capital Construction Program which combines both the school and general government needs. LET US ASK EVERYONE AND LET US ALL PARTICIPATE IN CREATING THE TRUE FUTURE COMMUNITY. LL) u * * ACCOUNTANT DEPARTMENT Robert H. Leet, Accountant The Accounting Department performs many and various functions during the year which are very necessary and important in maintaining the Town's stability. All the general financial records of the Town are maintained in this office by our devoted and conscientious employees. Their primary duties are: processing all Town payrolls and bill vouchers, maintaining health and life insurance records, and handling various other problems which arise. The annual budget, both preliminary and final, was prepared and distributed. Also the Financial section of the Town Report was compiled. Various other reports were prepared for the following: Bureau of Accounts, State Tax Commission, Bureau of Census-Federal, various banks, town departments and committees, research bureaus, and other financial institutions — showing the complete financial transactions and condition of the Town. We have been busy preparing for the fiscal year change which should prove to be interesting and possibly chaotic. During the year one of our employees (Alice Georgeopoulos) left to have a baby. She was replaced by Mr. Edwin Bronk who has done an excellent job since his appointment. Detailed financial statements for the year 1972 are set forth in the colored pages of this report. 26 BOARD OF ASSESSORS Varnum S. Pedrick, Chief Assessor William R. Lewis John D. Heaphy Assessments: The total assessed value of real estate and personal property committed to the collectors office for collection was $66,505,007. This represents an increase to widen our tax base of $1,934,960. which helped us to maintain our tax rate by saving us about $1.92 on a $1,000. assessed value. Our office also committed for collection 7007 motor vehicle excise tax bills for collection which amounted to over $296,913. and added about this amount to our treasury. We received from the building inspector 134 building permits for new and remodeling construction, many of which should add substantially to our tax base for 1973. The activity of this office in maintaining up-to-date value records has been instrumental in bringing to the Town the large amount of Revenue Sharing funds that we received in December, 1972 and January, 1973. Part of the formula for determining the funds is based upon evaluation. As a community achieves close to, or 100%, evaluation, this enhances the tax effort portion of the formula, thus enhancing the total amount for the community. (J to </} LU tO to < * * * * TREASURER-COLLECTOR George C. Mourikas The following bills were sent out: Personal Property Real Estate Motor Vehicle Excise Farm Animal Excise Sewer Betterment Check Register Balances were reconciled with Bank Statements. Federal and State Withholding Tax Statements were distributed. A Record of Trust Fund transactions was maintained. A schedule of Receipts was rendered to the Town Accountant monthly. The Treasurer's Office is the Nerve Center of the Town and must accept all responsibilities, under the Statue General Laws of Massachusetts. The fact that tax collections have been at approximately 99% of expectations, it was instrumental in enhancing the amount of money received under the Revenue Sharing program. One part of the formula takes into account tax effort. This part of the formula is increased or decreased relative to the type of valuation and collections that each municipality has. We are at 100% evaluation and collections are approximately 99% of the taxes owed to the Town, so that this part of the formula is a strong plus towards producing the largest probably figure under the Revenue Sharing Formula. 27 O H U LU -J -J o u I LU C* </) < LU M LU C/5 O U o TOWN COUNSEL F. Dale Vincent At the beginning of the year the Town of Ipswich was defendant in Superior Court in five separate eases involving a suit for a declaratory judgement against the Town, the Selectmen, the Moderator and the Town Clerk; a suit for damage allegedly due to a fall on a defective sidewalk; a suit for further damage for taking a sewer easement by eminent domain; a suit for property damage incident to sewer construction; and an appeal to the Superior Court of a refusal of the Sewer Commissioner to grant an abatement of a betterment assessment. The suit for a declaratory judgement was dismissed by the Court after hearings. The suit for damage caused by a fall and for damage caused by the sewer easement taking were disposed o\' without liability. The suit with respect to the sewer abatement was settled by compromise advantageously to the Town. Of the five Superior Court actions pending at the beginning of the year only the suit for property damage incident to sewer construction is still outstanding. During the year the Town instituted suit against a developer for damage for failure to perform a contract to complete certain improvements in a subdivision. An appeal from the decision of the Board of Appeals is pending in Superior Court. Another appeal from the decision by the Board of Appeals was brought in the District Court and the Board of Appeals decision upheld. A suit against the Town for back pay by the policeman allegedly injured on duty has been commenced in Superior Court, and the Building Inspector and Town Manager are being sued in Superior Court to compel the issuance of a building permit for an apartment complex which was refused to be issued in view of the Town's overtaxed sewer disposal plant. In addition to the foregoing, opinions with respect to various questions have been furnished to the Selectmen, Town Manager, Library Trustees, School Department, Planning Board, Board of Health, Cemetery Department, Building Inspector, Shellfish Advisory Commission and Housing Authority. Proposed revisions of the Town By-Laws have been reviewed and Chapter 111 of the By-Laws revised and passed by the Town Meeting and approved by the Attorney General. A proposed Flood Plain Zoning By-Law and a Wet Lands Conservancy By-Law is under consideration in anticipation of the 1973 ATM. * During the summer, our Town was honored by a visit from the Worshipful, The Mayor of Ipswich, England, Alderman Walter H.

The members of the commission began an active program to help the Town of Ipswich. Some of the problems facing the community in the past few years were the high percentage of property taxes in the Town paid by the single family homeowner, and the lack of an adequate job market. The commission worked in trying to solve these two basic problems, by first trying to attract business and industry to the Town which would broaden the tax base and fit in with the long range plans of the community, and second to create an active employment market. In the summer, Commission member Louis Joslyn suggested the commission investigate the possibility of starting a Local Development Com- pany. To accomplish this we held a meeting with the local representative of the Small Business Administration, Robert Indrassino, James Coffey, Vice President of Bay State National Bank, George McGregor, President of the Haverhill National Bank and a Representative from the Dept. of Commerce for the state of Mass. After this and several other meetings the EIDC voted unanimous- ly to establish a non-profit local development company in the Town of Ipswich. On December 14th, 1972 at an open meeting, over 30 citizens of the community paid $50 each for shares of stock to officially start the Ipswich Local Development Corporation. Commission member Tom Emery proposed the slogan for the new Corp. "Invest in the Future of Ipswich". I would like to take this opportunity to pub- licly thank the citizens of the Town for their support and the commission members for all their hard work in the past year.

Conley, Chairman Barbara C. Emberly Louise B. Hodgkins George R. Mathey Lovell Thompson Alice Keenan John H. Updike The members of the Ipswich Historical Commission have held regular meetings twice monthly at the Town Hall during the past year and have lent their support to and participated in all civic matters pertaining to the historic aspects of the community. The Commission has continued its work on the Ipswich Historical Preservation Demonstration Project. The program, made possible by funds supplied by the Ipswich Heritage Trust, and matched by funds supplied by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, has proved to be very valuable. Guided by the professional direction of John Cole, the Commission has executed covenants with 15 owners of old and historic Ipswich properties in a pioneer program designed to preserve and protect the irreplaceable architectural features of the past. The members of the Commission have given their enthusiastic support and energies to "Olde Ipswich Days", sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and actively participated in "17th Century Day", sponsored jointly by the Ipswich Historical Society and the Ipswich Garden Club. In an effort to record and preserve the recollections of the more recent past, the Commission has joined forces with the "Ipswich Speaks" program and has loaned a tape recorder to aid in the project. We wish to thank all those citizens who have so generously given of their time to record their recollections of Ipswich. The Commission has replaced old plaques and affixed new ones on the historic homes of the community. This is a continuing project, and we are pleased at the favorable response from home-owners, residents and visitors to the town. The Commission wishes to acknowledge with regret the resignation of John Markos from the Commission. Mr. Markos has assisted in many of the projects undertaken by the Commission, and we appreciate his continuing interest. We welcomed new member, John Updike. During the coming year, the members will continue their work on the HUD Preservation Program, hoping to bring it to a conclusion with the printing of the final report. We also expect to formulate tentative plans for the Town's participation in the 1976 Bi-Centennial Celebration. 30 After a work session, these youths relax on the front steps of their new quarters. (Ipswich Today) YOUTH COMMISSION Annette I. George, Director Bro. W. Robert Russell, Chairman David L. Baldwin Mary Graffum Peter Haskell Cathleen McGinley George W. Pacheco Deborah Hovey 1972 has been a full and successful year for the Ipswich Youth Commission. In June the Drop-In-Center moved to larger quarters in the South Parish House. The increased space brought about an increase in the number of young people participating in the overall program. Among the activities the Youth Commission has been responsible for are the following: 323 evenings at the Drop-In-Center 5 sessions on Drug Education with outside consultants 18 movies Counseling for disturbed young people Lessons in Arts and Crafts 3 Rock Concerts at Castle Hill 5 Dances Support of Summer lacrosse program In early September, word was received from the Department of Youth Services that retroactive to July, no further funding would be forthcoming from the Commonwealth. At the present time the fate of the Youth Commission is uncertain as budget deliberations of the Finance Committee are still undisclosed. The Ipswich Youth Commission depends largely on contributions from the community. The many hours given by volunteers at the Drop-In-Center and the many donations of furniture have increased during 1972. WHAT WE DO FOR THE YOUTH TODAY ....

(Ipswich Chronicle) 31 Z LU < a. UJ Q UJ (J £".£./!. Cac/ef Charles Schwartz and Police Chief Armand Brouillette examine a stalk of confiscated "grass". (Ipswich Chronicle) POLICE DEPARTMENT Armand R. Brouillette, Chief It is with great humility and some amount of pride that we can report to you that your police department has been able to contain not only the rate of increase of crime, but also that crime has decreased in our community. The recent F.B.I, report on the rate of crime indicates, that throughout the country, law enforcement agencies report a drop in the rate of increase of crime. In Ipswich we report a drop in crime itself as presented in the statistical table. There are many factors which enter into an explanation for this decrease, such as; a more stable social atmosphere, a decrease in campus unrest, a decrease in incidence of hard drugs. Perhaps the most significant factors for this achievement were the increase of patrol activity and the utilization of an investigation force in the department. The patrol activity increased from two to three cars which was a 50% increase in patrol capability. Also the decrease we show in Ipswich can be explained by the fact that we had five EEA employees funded by the Federal Emergency Employment Act. We were fortunate to have had three of these people working as cadet police officers and doing patrol and street duty. The other two were civilian desk clerks who answered phones, dispatched calls and received complaints over the desk. This enabled a police officer, who did this work, to go out onto the street where he was more efficiently used. We have recently lost the two civilian desk clerks. They have taken up other endeavors, and we will loose the three cadet policemen by June 1 , as the program of EEA will have ended at that time. We have added a two cell lock-up to replace the four cells which were condemned. These are used to overflow capacity on many occasions. There is a need for storage place and more office space. The Town Manager and Selectmen are presently looking into space needs' for all town departments. We are grateful to be able to serve with all members of the department who's goal is to continue to decrease crime and make Ipswich a safe place in which to live, work, and play. Sgt.

JAILLET GORDON A. McGILL Commissioner Director of Accounts February 10, 1972 To the Board of Selectmen Mr. Joseph A. Navarro, Chairman Ipswich, Massachusetts Gentlemen: I submit herewith my report of an audit of the books and accounts of the town of Ipswich for the period from December 15, 1968 to July 31, 1972, made in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 44, General Laws. This is in the form of a report made to me by Mr. Walter F. ABel , Assistant Chief of Bureau. Very truly yours , GORDON A. McGILL Director of Accounts GAM: EM Mr. Gordon A. McGill Director of Accounts Department of Corporations and Taxation Boston, Massachusetts Sir: In accordance with your instructions, I have made an audit of the books and accounts of the town of Ipswich for the period from December 15, 1968, the date of the previous examination, to July 31, 1971, and submit the following report thereon: The financial transactions, as recorded on the books of the several departments receiving or disbursing money for the town or committing bills for collection, were examined, checked, and verified by comparison with the books of the town accountant and the treasurer. The books and accounts of the town accountant were examined and checked. The ledger accounts were analyzed, the receipts as recorded were checked with the available departmental records and with the treasurer's books, while the payments were compared with the treasury warrants authorizing the disbursement of town funds and with the treasurer's cash book. The appropriation accounts and loan authorizations were checked with the amounts voted by the town as shown by the town clerk's records of the town meetings, and the transfers from the reserve fund were compared with the amounts authorized by the finance committee. A trial balance was taken off, and a balance sheet, which is appended to this report, was prepared showing the financial condition of the town as of July 31, 1971. The books and accounts of the town treasurer were examined and checked. The receipts as recorded were analyzed and checked with the town accountant's books, with the records in the several departments collecting money for the town, and with other sources from which money was paid into the town treasury, while the payments were compared with the approved warrants and with the accountant's books. The cash balance on July 31 f 1971 was proved by reconciliation of the bank balances with statements furnished by the banks of deposit, by inspection of the savings bank books, by verification of the certificates of deposit, and by actual count of the cash in the office. During the progress of the audit of the treasurer's bank accounts it was discovered that payrolls had been processed through the computer services division of a bank, in which connection it was noted that the treasurer had no cancelled checks nor any bank statement to substantiate the detailed transactions. The treasurer should comply with the requirements of the State accounting system pertaining to adequate fiscal control by only entering into agreements for computerized payroll services whereby he will be assured that cancelled checks and monthly bank statements will be furnished to him. The recorded payments on account of maturing debt and interest were checked with the amounts falling due and with the cancelled securities and coupons on file. The outstanding bonds and coupons on July 31, 1971 were listed and reconciled with statements furnished by the banks of deposit. The transactions of the several trust and investment funds in the custody of the town treasurer, the treasurer of the library trustees, the trustees of the Manning School Funds, the Brown School Fund, and the Burley Education Fund, and of the Feoffees of the Grammar Schools of Ipswich were checked. The securities and savings bank books representing the investment of these funds were examined and listed, the income was proved, the withdrawals were verified, and the transfers to the town were compared with the receipts as recorded on the treasurer's cash book. The records of the tax titles and tax possessions held by the town were examined. The additions to the tax title account were checked with the town collector's records, the redemptions were compared with the treasurer's cash bock, and the tax titles and tax possessions on hand were listed, reconciled with the town accountant's ledger, and compared with the records at the Registry of Deeds. The records of employees* payroll deductions for Federal and State taxes, the county retirement system, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and group insurance were examined. The deductions were proved and payments to the proper agencies were verified. The books and accounts of the town collector were examined and checked. The tax, excise, assessment, departmental, and water accounts outstanding at the time of the previous examination, as well as all subsequent commitments, were audited and proved. The recorded collections were compared with the payments to the treasurer, the abatements were checked with the assessors' and other departmental records of abatements granted, the taxes transferred to the tax title account were checked with the treasurer's records of tax titles held by the town, and the outstanding accounts were listed and reconciled with the town accountant's ledger. The records of apportioned sewer assessments were examined and checked. The payments in advance were checked with the treasurer's recorded receipts, the abatements were compared with the assessors' records of abatements granted, the amounts added to taxes 1969 and 1970 were checked with the town collector's books, and the apportionments due 5 in future years, as well as the suspended assessments, were listed- and reconciled with the respective ledger accounts. The books and accounts of the municipal light department were examined and checked. The recorded collections were compared with the payments to the treasurer, the abatements and discounts were verified, and the outstanding accounts were listed. The records of municipal light consumers' deposits were examined and checked. The controlling account in the ledger was analyzed, the refunds were verified, and the deposits on hand July 31, 1971 were listed and proved. Verification of the outstanding tax, excise, assessment, departmental, municipal light, and water accounts was made by mailing notices to a number of persons whose names appeared on the books as owing money to the town, and from the replies received it appears that the accounts, as listed, are correct. The town clerk's records pertaining to dog and sporting licenses issued, as well as to collections for recording fees, marriage intentions, etc., were examined and checked. The cash book was footed and the payments to the treasurer and to the Division of Fisheries and Game were verified. The cash balance on July 31, 1971 was proved by reconciliation of the bank balance with a statement furnished by the bank of deposit, and by actual count of the cash in the office. The records of departmental cash collections by the board of selectmen, the sealer of weights and measures, and the plumbing, gas, and building inspectors, as well as by the health, recreation, and school departments, and by all other departments in which money was collected for the town, were examined and checked. The payments to the town treasurer were verified by comparison with the treasurer's and the town accountant's books, and the cash on hand in the several departments was proved. The books and accounts of the treasurer of the Eastern Essex Veterans' Services District were examined and checked. The recorded receipts were analyzed and verified by comparison with the amounts paid by the member towns of the district. The payments, as entered, were checked with the approved warrants authorizing the disbursement of district funds, and the cash balance on July 31, 1971 was proved by reconciliation of the bank balance with a statement furnished by the bank of deposit. The surety bonds filed by the town officials required to furnish them for the faithful performance of their duties were examined and found to be in proper form. There are appended to this report, in addition to the balance sheet, tables showing reconciliations of the treasurer's and the town clerk's cash, summaries of the tax, excise, assessment, tax title, tax possession, departmental, municipal light, and water accounts, as well as schedules showing the condition and transactions of the trust and investment funds. During the progress of the audit cooperation was received from all officials of the town, for which, on behalf of my assistants and for myself, I wish to express appreciation.

Conti attaches the 5 Trumpet Badge on the hat of the Town's new Fire Chief, Theodore F. Mozdziez. (Ipswich Chronicle) FIRE DEPARTMENT Theodore F. Mozdziez, Chief The Fire Department had an active year. The Town's growth in building and population accounts for the increased activities. With the increasing suburban type community we now live in, it is anticipated that over the coming years the department services will also increase. Three additional men will be added during the midyear to the force due to a reduction in working hours from 56 to 48. The department made a total of 343 responses. Of these 79 were Bell Alarms, 264 were still Alarms. A summary of the serious calls include: Resuscitator Building Fires Oil Burners Car Fires Electrical Bomb Reports Search & Rescue Other activities included woods, grass, stoves, dryers, rubbish and numerous miscellaneous calls as follows: The present staffing includes: 971 1972 12 18 19 19 15 12 36 33 22 9 5 6 6 9 71 1972 16 12 78 81 95 135 18 17 Blasting Permits Oil Burner Inspections Complaints Investigated False Alarms Fire loss total for the year shows $33,118.00 paid out on buildings valued at $2,659,230.00. The new ladder purchased this year is a 100' Aerial. The contract was awarded to the American LaFrance Corp. Date of delivery is expected to be in September. This is a welcomed replacement and should enhance our firefighting capabilities and effectiveness.

Harrigan Assistant Director - Robert O'Meara LU z LU ll LLl Q CIVIL DEFENSE AGENCY Robert O'Meara, Assistant Director The Ipswich Civil Defense Agency of Ipswich has made great strides in emergency readiness preparation. First - The building of an Emergency Operational Center. Second — The coordination of Auxiliary Fire and Radio groups into a smooth working Team. A team of dedicated people working with one goal in mind. The GOAL - This whole conception of emergency readiness can be summed up by saying that the forces of Government, and all others with emergency missions, must be able to do the right thing at the right time when the chips are down. This includes procedures for coordinating the operations of Police forces, Ambulances, Fire forces, Hospital, Medical personnel, and all other people and units with capabilities for helping citizens under disaster conditions. Through the Civil Defense Agency the Town of Ipswich received a total of $21,000 for storm damage for the storm in February, 1972. A survey of storm damage was made. An application was filed and a grant of said amount was given to the Town to repair damages. This alone proves the value of Civil Defense to the Town. U AUXILIARY POLICE Rudolph Provost, Captain II.

Maryland was shut off because of heavy rains. The following permits were issued: 199 Commercial Permits («> $20.00/year 800 Resident Non-Commercial @ $2.50/year 384 Non-Resident @ $2.50/day 236 Yearly Non-Resident @ $15.00/year In the course of the year, some of the areas for winter digging had to be closed. Studies were done with Dr. Moore and Mr. Terrell on clam flats and water. On September 14 all clam flat areas were closed because of the Red Tide. Many samples were taken in all areas and tested at the laboratories. On December 20th one portion was opened because the state standard count of 80 or below had been reached. Many meetings were attended in Boston to get these areas opened. Clams are limited on the amount you can take in these areas. In the course of the Red Tide we had men cleaning mussels for five weeks in the beach area .... they did a good job. Several meetings were held with the Shellfish Advisory Board. This is a very active group at meetings and in the field. I few "live" clams found during the pernicious red tide. (Ipswich Chronicle) * * LU X HARBOR DEPARTMENT Arthur Moon, Ex-Harbor Master Early in the Spring two floats were repaired at the wharf. Channel Markers were put in the Ipswich River and Eagle Hill area. New five mile an hour signs were made up. There were a large amount of calls for mooring areas. Three men were appointed as Assistant Harbor Masters in the Yacht Club area. With the assistance of the Fire Department, one fire damaged boat was towed in. The Harbor Master's position required excessive amount of time during the height of the shellfish season. In June, Charles Bayley was appointed Harbor Master and worked in this capacity until August. We appreciate Mr. Bayley 's services during a time when the Harbor Master's activities were at a peak as were shellfish activities. Arthur Moon, ex-Harbor Master, assists the Fire Dept. in extinguishing a boat fire - one of the many duties of harbor master. (Ipswich Chronicle) 36 BOARD OF HEALTH Roland Foucher, Agent Dr. William C. Wigglesworth , Chairman Norman L. Quint Dr. Joseph W.

It deals with disability, unemployment, the unemployable, illness, strikes and, even, disaster. It is, therefore, difficult to estimate with great accuracy the expenditure under this program. The number of veterans and their dependents receiving assistance in the Town of Ipswich under Chapter 115 of the General Laws, as amended, is being reported by the number of cases processed monthly, as follows: January - 82, February - 81, March - 78, April - 65, May - 67, June - 68, July - 69, August - 69, September - 68, October - 67, November - 77, December - 80. A total of 871 cases were processed this year. 42 applications for the Massachusetts Vietnam bonus were filed. Exclusive of the bonus, 50% of the cost of the Benefit program is reimbursed by the State. Expenditures are listed in the financial statement of the Town Report. Veterans' Services — Federal It is the primary function of this department to secure all Federal funds for veterans and their dependents to which they are entitled. Services rendered to veterans and their dependents are as follows: 22 Applications for Replacement of Separation Documents, 30 Education Applications, 70 Power of Attorney forms, 16 Applications for Hospital Treatment, 19 Applications for Real Estate Abatements, 14 Treasury Checks returned, 4 Headstone Applications, 29 Applications for Pensions and Compensations, 45 Statements in Support of Claim, 18 Statements of Income & Net Worth, 26 Applications for Outpatient Treatment, 54 Annual Questionnaire cards, 16 Change of Address forms, 20 Certificates of Eligibility, 5 Claims for Insurance or Indemnity, 3 Requests and Consent to Release Information, 1 Application for Vocational Rehabilitation, 7 Requests for Change of School or Program, 1 Statement of Disappearance, 12 Requests for School Attendance, 8 Headstone Applications, 4 Flag Applications, 32 Requests for Copy of War Records and 6 Applications for Insurance Claims. Compensations and Pensions obtained through this office for Ipswich veterans and their dependents totaled $241,752.00 yearly. Hospitalizations in VA facilities saved the Town of Ipswich $44,440.00. Educational benefits being received by veterans and their dependents total $96,176.00. These three categories account for a total of $382,368.00 in savings to the Town of Ipswich. There is no cost to the Town or the State for Federal monies received. < LU X Ll_ o o < o 03 $* ^^ f* 1^1 37 LU U LU < LU I- LU Z LU < LU Q CO O y GO Z) PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT Kevin D. McElhinney, Director The Public Works Department is a conglomerate of the following divisions: Highway, Forestry, Water, Sewer, Equipment Maintenance and Building Maintenance, Lach division is charged with the responsibility of its own particular duties. During the times when excess manpower is needed to perform any specific task, personnel are exchanged within the divisions so as to better accomplish the completion of the task. I have listed below the major projects performed by each dividion. Highway Surface treatments consisting of oil, stone and sand mixture, were applied to the following streets: Candlewood Road Fellow's Road Sagamore Road Upper River Road Masconomet Road Beechwood Road Mitchell Road Mile Lane Stage Hill Road Bayvicw Road Bunker Hill Road Lowe's Lane New top wearing surfaces were applied following streets: on the Riley Avenue *Labor-in-Vain Road ♦Little Neck Road Clark Road Appleton Park Sal ford Street Winter Street Topsfield Road East Street *Work done with money appropriated by Federal Government due to storm damage February 19, 1972. Road Repair is a continuous job for the Highway Department. (Ipswich Chronicle) Bituminous concrete base courses were applied on the following streets; the work was done in conjunction with sewer construction. These streets are scheduled to receive new wearing surfaces in 1973: Oakhurst Avenue Juniper Street Pleasant Street Cogswell Street Sawyer Street Perlcy Ave. North Perley Avenue Ryan Avenue Blaisdell Terrace Wainwright Street Congress Street Fairview Avenue Broadway Avenue Brownvdle Avenue In addition, division personnel worked on snow and ice operations, drainage maintenance, and assisted on sewerage construction. Building Maintenance Capital improvements were limited to the installation of new cellblocks in the Town Hall, replacing antiquated cells in the basement. Equipment Maintenance Division personnel are responsible for maintenance of all Town vehicles. The work is done on a scheduled basis to insure that vehicles are kept in top mechanical order. Forestry Mosquito spraying continued into the second year. Under this operation, all areas of the Town are sprayed at least once per week during the months of June, July, August and September. Division personnel also spray breeding areas to try to lessen the effect of these summer pests. Other activities of the division include: removal of diseased elms; spraying of elms with dormant spray; spraying of elms for leaf beetles; thorough spraying of oaks for oak leaf skeletonizer worms; worked thirty -two days with the Electric Department, clearing lines. Water New pumps were required at the Winthrop Well No. 1 and Mile Lane Well sites. Heavy rainfall during 1972 caused the water supply to be in excellent condition during the year. This also caused some decrease in revenue due to shortage of grounds waterings. 38 During late fall, the Town cleaned water mains on County Road, Outer Linebrook Road and Topsfield Road. This cleaning was done in order to eliminate a "Red Water" situation that had existed since March and has persisted throughout the year. Chemical analysis records indicated that as of March, the water took on a more acid character and the hardness factor also became more severe. These two factors contributed to the exhilarated corrosion and breaking down of corrosion matter in the water pipe. It is planned that the water pipe cleaning program will be continued until all cast iron mains are cleaned and cement lined. We estimate this program will take three or more years, but will greatly enhance the quality of water delivered to each home. A brief summation of the division's functions is as' follows: 1970 1971 1972 New meters installed: 92 101 102 Meters replaced: 89 97 131 Services turned on: 172 165 167 Services turned off: 129 148 163 New Services: 23 56 55 Services Discontinued: 2 1 1 Hydrants Installed: 16 12 3 Hydrants removed: 6 New Water Mains Installed 7,516' 16,926' Total Length of Mains: 383,247' Total Water Services: Metered Services: 2,982 Unmetered Sales: 143 Summer Services: 177 Total 3,302 Water Usage (gallons) 408,907,700 417,307,900 479,426,150 Water Department Employee, Earl Richards waits while the "not-so-clear" water is flushed from this hydrant.

It provides an opportunity to work more closely with builders and to prevent after-the-fact correction of potentially serious problems. Special attention has been devoted to strict compliance with the building code and conformity to the /oning by-laws. * RECREATION AND PARKS DEPARTMENT James H. Daly, Director Increased activities and several new programs contributed to a highly successful summer playground season that kept hundreds of Ipswich youngsters both busy and happy. The continued cooperation of individual volunteers, local organizations and Town Departments was a factor in helping the Department to initiate, improve and execute a variety of activities that were well received by both the children and parents. Innovations were the Mini Tours of Ipswich, The Castle Hill Family Picnic and the Tennis instruction that was followed by a Tourney amongst the students. The Mini -Tours included visits to Crane's Beach, the Castle grounds, LaSalette, Sacred Heart Juniorate grounds, a tour of the Neck areas, Sagamore Hill, the Nike site and other points of interest. Most popular was the all day picnic within the Crane Castle grounds where upwards of 300 youngsters participated in games, races, swimming, a kite flying contest and a free lunch. Interest was also high in the Tennis instruction program carried out at the Linebrook courts where 150 youngsters, boys and girls, took part. The instruction period was followed by a Tourney amongst the students and trophies awarded in several age groups. Other highlights of the summer season were the visits here by the Stagemobilc and the Zoomobile and the day trips via busses to Fenway Park, the Beverly Music Theatre, to Crane's Beach lor the annual Sand Sculpture contest and the ever popular Lincoln Park. Daily attendance (average) at the eight staffed playgrounds ranged between 500 and 600 depending on weather conditions. Upwards of 400 boys and girls participated in the Swim Instruction program that was carried out concurrently with the daily playground activities, the many special events and inter-playground sports competitions. Two Pony League teams entered into the Inter Town League were sponsored by the Department. Continuing on a successful vein was the adult men's Softball league involving 350 players and using four fields. It is expected that activity in this sport will expand in 1973. All teams are self supporting with the Recreation Department supplying bases, pitcher's rubbers and home plates. Organizational paper work is carried out by the Recreation office where monthly meetings are held. Golden Age Club members enjoyed seven day long trips to various points of interest. Intown features included the annual Installation and Banquet, a picnic at the LaSalette grounds, a Theatre party at the Strand, a Christmas party at the V.F.W. Hall and several special programs at the Club's meeting place in the K of C Hall. Membership remains open to citizens of Ipswich and Rowley who have reached their sixtieth birthday. In the case of couples, both are eligible providing at least 40 one of the spouses have attained the eligible age. The Club meets regularly on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 2:00 p.m. in the K of C Hall on Topsfield Road. The Recreation program in Ipswich is looked upon as one of the best in the North Shore area and beyond. Activities, indoor and outdoor, too numerous to mention here are carried out on a twelve month basis utilizing the school gyms and other facilities when available. The Department also maintains and supervises the rentals at the Beach Lighthouse cottage and schedules the use of the Memorial Building. Weeklong activities are provided for youngsters during school vacation periods. The Department always stands ready to impart its knowledge and loan equipment to local organizations when requested. In order to keep pace with the times and the resulting increased activities in Municipal recreation the Department has two goals set for 1973. The first is the start of a long overdue lighting program to bring about double use of existing facilities. The second is the establishment of a program and facilities for special children which will be 50 percent reimburseable from Federal funds. Members of the appointed Recreation-Parks Commission are: Chairman Charles Foley; Frederick Jenkins, Eleanor Knowles, Douglas Holland and Elizabeth Geanakakis. Parks Along with maintaining approximately fifty acres of Parkland, Commons, Playgrounds etc. the crews carried out several projects including the construction of two Ice Skating Rinks, one at Giles Firmin Playground and another on the former Heard property; installed additional Finger piers at the Hood's Pond Swim Instruction area; installed _ portable bleachers at three Ball Fields, put up fencing at Giles Firmin Playground; hot-topped an area of Father Rye playground and installed major pieces of playground equipment at the Neck property. Department crews were busy from April until September maintaining and improving nine active Baseball, Softball fields, three Playground fields (Softball), the two Neck beaches, the Lighthouse Parking lot and building and the lawns and shrubbery of the Light, Water and Highway Departments. Crews also participated in the general town cleanup in preparation for Olde Ipswich Week. It is noted that, vandalism on these parcels of land maintained by the Department was on the increase and steps have been taken to minimize losses. Further improvements and additional equipment are planned for 1973. The continued cooperation of the Light, Water, Forestry, Fire and School Departments in carrying out certain projects is hereby gratefully acknowledged.

Two eight grave lots, seven four grave lots, six two grave lots and one single were sold with perpetual care. Converted from annual care to perpetual care were two, Vandalism in our Cemeteries is the cause of many extra labor-hours and unnecessarily spent money for our Cemetery Dept. (Ipswich Chronicle) ten grave lots one, eight grave lot and three, four grave lots. Awarded by American Legion for Veterans and their families were six, four grave five, two grave and one single grave, with no revenue for care of these lots. Sixty three monument foundations were dug and laid. Twenty government markers were set for veterans. Fifteen sets of granite corner bounds for lots sold and awarded were set. Forty three monuments were repaired and re -set. Most of this work was caused by vandals and had to be repaired. Two hundred fifty nine tons of Hot Top were used to re-surface the avenues in New Highland Cemetery. On our equipment replacement program, we purchased two heavy duty self propelled 36" Bunto Rotary Mowers, and one 36" rotary for small tractor mower and five 20" rotary mowers. During the winter months the avenues were plowed with Cemetery four wheel drive, which is also used day and night during heavy snow storms to assist the Public Works Department in clearing roads and parking areas.

Crowley, Librarian Keeping pace with national trends, the Ipswich Public Library is responding by adapting the institution to the needs of the people. From its traditional role as custodian of the book collection, the library is growing into a vital, user-oriented information center with emphasis on service. Better than 50% of the communiry (6,478) are registered borrowers, with the past year alone showing an increase of over 2,200 new users. As the town's needs" grow, and as interior space diminishes, your library is reaching out more and more into the community, supplying or expanding service in areas previously unmet: —To the homebound: an extension of library service initiated with the volunteer assistance of the Friends of the Library. —To the visually and physically handicapped: Talking Books from the Library of Congress; large type books and newspapers. -To senior members of the community: monthly book talks, bringing stories and book reviews to nursing homes, in cooperation with the Friends. With additional manpower, we hope to expand this program from its modest beginnings. —To children: a summer bookmobile run by volunteers. -To education: for the part-time adult student, more reference assistance ... for the junior/senior high student, individualized instruction in library use . . . cooperation in open-campus ... for the elementary school pupil, classroom visits, stories and films ... for the teacher, library materials and reader's advisory service. The highest priority of the library continues to be to bring the best and the latest in printed material to the community, supplying the right book to the right person at the right time. As your local information center, the library has provided : —A list of agencies dealing with the problems of retardation. —Names of shipping companies doing business with the Port of Boston. —Academy Award Winners of the Thirties. —Books on dyslexia. —A list of Legal Aid Societies serving Essex County. Program Highlights of the Year: —For children, a sing-along, story hours, movies. —For adults, cultural traditions of the town, rotating art exhibitions, "Ipswich Speaks". The Friends of the Library continue to contribute invaluable assistance, with an active in-service program, an annual book sale and tag day. The services of the Eastern Regional Library System enable us, as a member library, to bring to Ipswich the combined media and informational resources of member libraries in a network linked by daily truck delivery service. For the user, this means quicker delivery of books and films secured through inter-library loan. Following a favorable vote on Article 19 at the 1972 Town Meeting, initial steps have been taken by the Board of Trustees to change the terms of the original trusts governing the library in order to meet the growing needs of the community for library service. With a total of 6,478 registered borrowers, Ipswich ranks high among libraries of the Commonwealth. For 1973-74, a major goal of the library is to reach an even larger percentage of the community. Circulation of library materials totalled 141,107, an increase that reflects both the growth of the town and rate of library use. 3,243 books were added to the collection, bringing the total number of volumes to 50,436. For the best in information, recreation and education call or visit your public library. The library is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Evening hours are Monday through Thursday 6:30-8:30. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Children's Room is closed during the evening hours. Kids take advantage of the newly founded bookmobile. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

(Ipswich Today) ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT Alfred Tobiasz, Manager The Electric Department along with the Electric Advisory Board and the Board of Selectmen are investigating land areas and construction methods to construct a new Light Department building. The building will contain the billing offices, engineering office, meter department, stockroom and vehicle storage. It will be large enough to contain all the materials needed for the installation and maintenance of overhead and underground construction. At this time we are extremely limited in our storage space. A new facility will allow us to purchase materials in large quantities at a far lower co v st. We are forced to increase our amount of stock due to increasing delivery dates on all materials. For example overhead transformers 20-36 weeks and pad mount transformers 54-60 weeks. The primary reason which necessitates constructing a new building is that our existing garage and storage area located on South Main Street, which is rented space, has been sold and we must vacate by April of 1973. A new aerial bucket truck was put into operation in November. This truck was purchased to satisfy the requirements for a more efficient and smoother operation by the Department personnel for the installation and maintenance of distribution lines. Construction Completed in 1972 1. The conversion of the 4l60 volt circuit on East Street, Jeffreys Neck Road and Little Neck Road to a point just beyond the intersection of Plover Hill Road and Little Neck Road including Mulholland Drive to 13,200 volts was completed. A stepdown transformer bank was installed on North Ridge Road and Plover Hill Road. This work was done to supply additional power to these areas. 2. Overhead cable was extended on Old Right Road and Newbury Road to provide power to new homes. 650 feet of underground cable was installed along Heard Drive and 900 feet was installed to provide power to the Bayside Apartments off Topsfield Road. 3. 45 streetlighting fixtures, 35 overhead services and 29 underground services, 26 poles, 26,482 feet of overhead wire and 1 1 ,582 feet of underground cables and 2,734 KVA of transformers were added to the system. Maintenance 33 overhead and 4 underground services, 96 poles and 32 streetlighting fixtures were replaced. Statistics Year Aver.

Castantini Mrs. Jessie Girard Mrs. Maryruth Williamson * During the spring and early summer of 1972, the Government Study Committee had a number of joint meetings with the Board of Selectmen to discuss Committee recommendations for revision of the Town By-laws. More recently, during the fall, your Chairman met with Selectman Charles K. Cobb, Jr., in sessions devoted to editorial and technical review and revision of a draft set of By-laws which we expect will be ready for submission to voters of the Town for action at the 1973 Annual Town Meeting. During 1972, except for the continuing By-law review project, the Committee has not had before it for consideration any study commission from the Board of Selectmen. * IPSWICH HOUSING AUTHORITY Jane Bokron, Executive Director Glenfred Wanzer, Chairman Alexander Bernhard, Vice-Chairman (State Appointee) Stanley Eustace, Treasurer Arthur Weagle, Assistant Treasurer John Thatcher, Jr., Commissioner The Ipswich Housing Authorty was organized on Tuesday, April 27, 1948 in the Selectmen's Room at 7:30 p.m. Elections at that time were as follows: Thomas A. Johnson, Chairman Fred G. Whittier, Vice-Chairman William J. H. Ewing, Secretary and Treasurer Sidney Shurcliff, Assistant Treasurer Much has happened to the Ipswich Housing Authority during the past 25 years. There are now three State Housing Developments in the Town of Ipswich operated and maintained by the Ipswich Housing Authority; namely, Projects 200-1, 667 -C and 667-3, plus the administering of 707 Rent Subsidy Program. 200-1 Veterans' Housing — This project, built in 1950, has all underground wiring. Ground-breaking ceremonies were held August 16, 1949. The Veterans' Project consists of seven buildings and houses 24 families. Each unit has its own gas furnace, hot water heater and gas stove. The Authority pays for the water and the tenant pays all other utilities. The average shelter rent per unit is $70.50 per month. This is based on the number of dependents and gross income per family. 667-C Housing for the Elderly - The present 667-C elderly housing consists of 62 apartments - 20 at Southern Manor and 42 at Caroline Avenue - Whittier Park. (Whittier Park was named after Fred G. Whittier, one of the original members of the Board.) The average shelter rent, based on 25 per cent of the total income of the tenant, is $47.50. Each apartment has a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath, and is equipped with an electric stove and a refrigerator. 667-3 Development Housing for the Elderly - During January 1972, elderly tenants moved into 58 new apartments on Caroline Avenue, bringing the total to 120 units for the senior citizens. The 58 new units were built identical to the other 42 units on Caroline Avenue. During the summer of 1972, a Laundry Room, with 2 washers and 2 dryers, was built in part of the existing garage. An exterior lighted apartment directory was installed next to the Laundry Room. Late in November of 1972, a 20-foot extension to the Recreation Hall was opened up for the benefit of all senior citizens in the Town of Ipswich. Rent Subsidy Chapter 707 — This is a program which provides subsidy to low income families, including elderly people. It allows the Authority to rent private apartments and to pay a rent supplement to make up the difference in the agreed total monthly rent for the apartment. In 1972, the Authority paid $44,211 in rent subsidy to private landlords. In 1971, the Housing Authority set up a Tenants' Organization in which two representatives for each project (total of 8, plus one tenant representative for Project 707) appointed by the tenants of each project to attend the regular monthly meetings to voice grievances and suggestions from their own respective projects to the Authority. On April 10, 1972 Joseph Ruest was hired as a full-time Maintenance Man for all projects operated by the Ipswich Housing Authority. Discussion during a business meeting include Housing Authority members, Arthur Weagle, Jane Bokron, Glen- fred Wanzer, Alexander Bernhard and John Thatcher. Missing from the picture is Stanley Eustace. (House of Hinlin) 45 Before (Ipswich Chronicle) The Old Payne School is now being used to House the School Administration Offices. After many hours of repairing and remodeling, the Payne School is now an attractive sight on Lord's Square. i^r. 4 After (Ipswich Today) LU LU o o o X V * First Row /l-r/ Term Expires Mr. James F.

In my opinion, this one year decrease is not valid to indicate a trend. We are continuing to rent the Boone Hall facility to accommodate 110 students and the Baptist Church where 39 students attend classes. School housing continues to be a problem and in the latter part of the year the proposed new high school was shelved and several alternatives are being considered by the School Committee to solve the space problems. On October 28, 1972 the school administrative offices were moved to the remodeled Payne School Building on 1 Lord Square. The town meeting action approved the cost of the necessary alterations and work was begun on June 22, 1972. The cost of the project was $49,728.00. The facilities are excellent and during Open House the School Committee and the Superintendent of Schools heard many favorable comments. Site improvement is planned during the Spring of 1973. Mr. Charles Goodhue, Jr. and Mr. William Hayes suggested the use of the Payne School for administrative offices and the conference room in the Payne School Building is named the Charles E. Goodhue, Jr. Conference Room in honor of his memory. During the past year as a result of legislation Chapter 95 of the acts of 1972 a Student Advisory School Committee was formed at the High School and a student, Scott Bouranis, who was elected by the student body, sits in when the School Committee meets and serves in an advisory capacity. The Student Advisory School Committee will meet with the School Committee every other month as specified in the recent legislation. In order to improve communication between the home and the school the administration initiated a Parents Advisory Council. Each school under the leadership of the Principal, meets regularly with this group and from all indications it appears that the bond between the home and the school has been strengthened. I encourage more parents to participate in these meetings in order to conduct a meaningful dialogue with school authorities in interpreting the educational program to insure a more effective understanding between the school and the home. During the past year Collective Bargaining negotiations consumed many hours of the School Committee and the Superintendent of Schools. The cafeteria employees and the custodians are now represented by the AFL-CIO, STate Council 41, Local 1098. The teachers' negotiations were settled on September 29, 1972 after many months of sessions. These negotiations, complex as they are, require the services of a qualified and experienced labor relations attorney who has been serving the School Committee and the Town for the past several years. The Whittier Regional Vocational and Technical High School plans to open its doors in September 1973. Ipswich is eligible to send 10% of the total capacity of Whittier or 150-180 students. For the past several months the Ipswich Public Schools have implemented under the Pupil Personnel Services Department a most comprehensive program to motivate, familiarize our students, both boys and girls, to attend the Whittier School where approximately forty-five programs will be offered. We shall continue to mass our resources to encourage our full quota to attend Whittier although as of January 15, 1973 we did not have 150 students expressing their intent to enroll at Whittier in the Fall. The operational date of Whittier in September 1973 means that our town has a very substantial financial commitment to the Whittier School. Ipswich's financial participation amounts to approximately $600,000.00 for the next 18 months. These monies coupled with the 18 month budget of the town will reflect in a heavy burden upon all of us and the School Committee and the Superintendent of Schools and other town officials are deeply concerned and are attempting to find some remedies to reduce this heavy financial commitment upon the taxpayers of Ipswich. During the last year Mrs. Mary Evans, Director of Elementary Education retired. We appreciate her long and dedicated service to the children of the Ipswich Public Schools and her contribution to the educational program at the Elementary level. The School Committee broadened the scope of this position and created the new position of Director of Curriculum, Kindergarten through Grade 12. The reports from the principals of the schools and the supervisors are included for your consideration. I extend to the School Committee my sincere appreciation for the many hours they have spent in negotiations and for their untiring devotion and dedication to meeting the educational needs of our young people. I extend to the administrators, teachers, custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers, and all others my sincere appreciation for their excellent cooperation. Finally I extend to the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Police, Highway, Fire Departments and other town officials my sincere appreciation for their excellent cooperation with the schools. 47 < u o o X u (/} X For a change of pace, High School Principal Joe Rogers instructs students in culinary arts. (Ipswich Chronicle) HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL Joseph Rogers Enrollment Boys Grade 9 98 Grade 10 106 Grade 11 96 Grade 12 96 Post-Graduate Totals 396 I. Staff Girls 101 107 81 1 401 Total 199 213 207 177 1 797 Due to a stable enrollment figure, no additional personnel was required, except in the area of specific learning disabilities. Since the State Department of Education is requiring all schools to provide educational opportunities for all pupils, we in Ipswich are extending the traditional secondary school curriculum to include special programs for exceptional children; thus there was the need to employ a teacher to aid pupils with specific learning disabilities. Thirteen teachers were hired to replace those who resigned and retired. Due to the abundance of candidates, we were able to be highly selective in screening and appointment. Most new teachers hold the master's degree and have benefited from advanced study, extensive travel and teaching experience. Our staff consists of a principal, an assistant principal, fifty-eight teachers and three counselors. In addition, visiting specialists include a part-time school nurse, part-time physician, part-time psychologist and part-time art instructor. The Director of Pupil Personnel Services is housed in the high school. We are lacking specialists in reading and speech therapy. II. Pupil Personnel This past year brought several "firsts'" to our school. In order to develop communications and understanding within the school and between school and the community, we have a student representative to the School Committee and both student and parent advisory boards to the school. Lack of space continues to be a major problem. There are times when the corridors and cafeteria are too crowded for pupil safety. The school was designed for 650 students and is now accommodating 800. While self discipline, self-direction and intelligent decision making are goals we have set, much direction and imposed discipline is still necessary. Our time schedule is staggered so that juniors and seniors begin their day at 7:40 a.m. and finish after four or five classes. Since freshmen and sophomores must remain in school for seven periods, their day begins at 9:27 and ends at 3:30 p.m. Food is available to students from 7:30 to 2:30; this includes breakfast, lunch and snacks. III. Curriculum Through the efforts of an ad hoc committee, we are utilizing the physical facility to nearly 100 per cent capacity. This committee, made up of parents, pupils and teachers, investigated every possibility for greater use of our building. It presented and implemented a nine period day lasting from 7:40 to 3:30. We are working under this plan for the second year. It is somewhat fruitful, yet presents many problems which are inevitable with an inadequate physical plant. While we have been able to offer a variety of electives in grades ten through twelve, we are still sadly lacking space to accommodate a truly good secondary school program. Little or no provision has been made for art, music or drama. Open Campus and Maximum Education Programs have extended our curriculum beyond the confines of the building. Under the supervision of Mrs. Mary Lou Sherr, our students have been presented with a multiplicity of opportunities in addition to the regular school curriculum to pursue individual interests, career possibilities and cultural experiences. Museum exhibits, contemporary and classical musical groups, lectures, educational trips and discussions of current controversial issues are all part of our program of curriculum expansion. Our program of studies is varied, current and, hopefully, meaningful to our students. We are constantly seeking better, more enlightening and stimulating courses and the methods and materials with which to teach them. Our elective system allows students to explore academic disciplines which were previously not available due to a rigid track system of college, business and technical courses ot study. Teacher and pupil reaction to such electives have proven both positive and educationally 48 sound. However, severe lack of space has prevented the much needed expansion in our art, music and dramatics programs. Other extreme inadequacies exist in physical education and athletic locker room space. IV. Building and Grounds Regular use of the building, due to the extended school day, adult education and summer school places a heavy burden on the budget. Unusually heavy use of the building and maintenance of poorly designed equipment have caused us to spend unprecedented amounts of money in up-keep and repairs. Pumps which are used to force sewage on to High Street and then to the treatment plan have caused much expense and many problems. An alarm system has been designed to alert the Police Department when a problem of flooding exists; however, this system should be completely re-designed to assure trouble-free waste disposal. Resurfacing of all approaches and parking areas is an absolute must; the original paving was very poor and, after nine years of use, we are encountering constant problems with pot holes, cracks and erosion. Despite excellent co-operation from all town departments in assessing our needs and aiding us in our attempts to maintain buildings and grounds, the situation remains crucial. V. Conclusion While we continue to grow educationally through a series of innovative and imaginative programs, we are still badly lacking in many areas. The coming academic year of 1973-1974 will determine the direction of our growth pattern. The Whittier Vocational-Technical School may relieve some of the pressure for space - just how much is purely speculative. However, even with the loss of fifty to one hundred pupils, we will still be unable to provide for our pupils in many areas; namely, physical education, locker room space, adequate grounds maintenance, music' art and drama. * * RALPH C. WHIPPLE MEMORIAL SCHOOL John Huttenan Organization The enrollment figures for the 1972-73 school year as of our October 1st State Report are as follows: Grade 7 213 Grade 8 230 Total 443 Programs and Curriculum Our program of elective courses has continued to be well received by the students. Currently, students have an opportunity to enroll in electives during study periods and two activity periods which are held during the week. The electives run for half the school year at which time new selections are made. During the first half of the 1972-73 school year thirty-five different electives were offered to the students. This year we have introduced the ISCS (intermediate Science Curriculum Study) program at the seventh grade level. This program stresses the investigatory or lab approach. Each student has an opportunity to work on experiments during class and to record his findings. It is felt that the students will enjoy science to a greater degree, will learn to work in a more scientific manner, and will develop a more in-depth understanding of the material presented. Next year provisions are being made to extend the program into the eighth grade. In preparation for the introduction of the program at our school, the science teachers attended a workshop in Foxboro during the last week of June. In addition, the teachers had an opportunity to visit other schools such as Newton and North Reading to see the program in action. During this year's budget deliberations the school committee will be asked to approve an additional music teacher to improve our instrumental music program (currently our students travel to the high school for instrumental music). In addition, we are requesting that our two physical education teachers be kept at the Junior High full time. Currently, each teacher spends approximately two and a half days at the elementary level and two and a half days at the Junior High School. This would allow us to improve our physical education program by: 1) reducing class sizes, 2) giving opportunity for individualized or small group instruction for those with physical handicaps, and 3) providing a health education program with instruction in first aid, safety, hygiene, etc. This year Spanish is being offered at the junior high level. Mr. Joseph Joaquin, language teacher, has two classes of converstational Spanish. Until this year French was the only foreign language offered. Conclusion I would again like to thank the superintendent, school committee, and community for the support given to the educational programs and needs of Ralph C. Whipple Memorial School. In particular, I would like to thank the parents who have served on our parents council and who are serving on various committees for self evaluation and improvement of the school.

Waitt, Jr., Principal During 1972 Doyon School continued to move toward individualized instruction at a rate commensurate with the ability of the staff and students to adjust to the new ideas, methods and materials. Perfoimance objectives have been completed in the areas of mathematics and reading. Organization The school continues to operate as in 1971 as a seven year (K-6) elementary school, with three sections of each grade (1-6) and three sections of special education for children with special needs, and four section of kindergarten. Enrollment from January to June averaged 532 students. In September the school opened its doors with 540 students housed as above with the exception of the reduction of one section of kindergarten because of a decrease in enrollment at that level. Teaching Personnel Mrs. Rose Merry, one of the original staff members, retired with nearly forty years service to the children of Massachusetts. Mrs. Merry came to Ipswich when the Winthrop School opened its doors in 1956. She is missed by students, staff and administration. Cheryl Southworth, kindergarten teacher, was transferred to Burley School and four other staff members resigned. Mrs. Elizabeth Geanakakis, our Guidance Counselor and Coordinator of Special Classes was granted a leave of absence to spend a year working with the State Department of Education. During the summer, replacements were found for the kindergarten, two fourth grades, two fifth grades, the Art teacher and for Guidance. The staff, all experienced and holding state certificates, consists of thirty-five full and part time teachers and specialists. Sixteen staff members have tenure with five more slated for tenure this year. Seven first year and seven second year teachers complete the staff. Eight staff members have earned Masters Degrees. Three full time teacher aides were added to our Special Education Department in September. (One paid with Title VI funds). Curriculum Work continues on developing individualized mathematics, reading and social studies. A new health program was introduced in September to implement our health curriculum and our primary grades were introduced to the S.C.I .S. science program with the aid of federal funds. Grade two continued the new social studies pilot program, and also began the Harcourt reading program. General In January the Parent Advisory group was established to add to the communication link between home and school. I believe this group has added to the quality of school life, and hold great hopes for future success. Mr. Armand Brouilette, our Head Custodian, retired in June after a long illness. Mr. Brouilette was appointed to the staff in early 1965 to watch over the school as it grew. We wish him a long, happy retirement. He was replaced in September by Mr. Joseph Dupray of High Street. The staff has been supplemented by eight student teachers from Gordon College and Salem State College, by undergraduate students from Gordon, and our own High School, also by three aides in training from the North Shore Community College teacher aide program. Some twenty mothers also aid in our library program, maintaining our excellent collection of books. For the first time, twelve mothers aided teachers in classroom instruction by becoming unpaid volunteer aides. Mr. Taplin, our sixth grade teacher was honored this fall when he was elected to serve a term as President of the Ipswich Teachers Association. * * WINTHROP AND BAPTIST SCHOOLS Samuel B. Levy, Principal Organization: This year the Winthrop Elementary School comprises two buildings; the Baptist School classes and the Winthrop School. The Baptist School houses two fourth grades having an enrollment of 39 students as of December 22, 1972. The Winthrop School houses four classes of grade six. The total enrollment for both buildings is 403 students. The Winthrop School houses a resource center containing a library of over 6,300 volumes which include reference works as well as general reading material appropriate to the age and interest level of the student body. Film, audio and visual materials are also available for individual and group research work. Various interest and activity groups are available to the students with staff members serving as leaders and advisors. An active student council represents all classrooms. 50 The school day for all students is six hours and fifteen minutes. Class "A" lunches are served to the student body. School bus transportation is provided for 178 students or 44% of the student population. Our facilities and equipment are used by many school, civic, church and private group functions and activities during after-school afternoon, evening and weekend hours. Organizations using these facilities include Girl Scouts, Square Dance Clubs, Boy Scouts, Church Fellowship Groups, Conservation Activities and High School and Junior High School car washes and Greek School classes. Curriculum: The Winthrop School provides a standard elementary school curriculum with a flexible structure. Staff members are using imaginative and innovative approaches to the curriculum to enliven the student's interest in their education. Specialists provide instruction in the area of art, music, and French. French instruction is given to all grade six classes four times each week. Physical education is carried on for two periods each week. Instrumental music lessons are provided to over 150 students. There is an active chorus of 75 boys and girls from grades five and six. Provisions are made for students requiring services in the area of specific learning disabilities and speech therapy. The Winthrop School participated in a Title I Project which provided three trained Teacher Aides to work in the area of learning disabilities. The school library is supervised by a librarian who is shared with the Doyon School and a corps of dedicated volunteer librarians. Teaching Personnel: The Winthrop-Baptist School staff is made up of seventeen classroom teachers plus vocal music, instrumental music, art and French teacher shared with other schools, a full-time specific learning disabilities specialist and a part-time speech therapist. The school also has the services of a full time guidance counselor, a part-time guidance specialist and- a consulting psychologist. The school participates in the teacher-training programs with Gordon and Salem State College. Many staff members are doing post graduate work at Boston and area colleges and universities. All the staff is involved regularly in scheduled workshops in the areas of curriculum development, individualized instruction, math and music. Three of our staff members are new to Ipswich this year. A nurse, a secretary, two full-time custodians, two lunchroom aides and five cafeterial workers complete the Winthrop School staff plus a lunchroom aide shared with other schools and a custodian servicing the Baptist. * * BURLEY, SHATSWELL AND BOONE HALL Mrs. Marcia J. Fowler, Principal Personnel Burley, Shatswell and Boone Hall are primary level schools. Together they employ 20 classroom teachers, 13 shared teaching specialists in the areas of Reading, Perceptually Handicapped, Special Needs, Art, Music, Physical Education, Speech and Guidance, 6 lunch aides, 1 part-time and 2 full-time custodians, 1 secretary, and 1 part-time nurse. Organization These three schools are organized to facilitate the unique learning nature of each child within his total world by adapting the instruction and scheduling to him. They offer both traditional graded classrooms with individualized expectations and open classes with non-graded individualized instruction. Children change rooms and teachers at times to receive lessons and practice with specific skills and to enable them to receive their instruction in the style and environment most suitable to their learning comfort and efficiency. These exchanges are flexible in duration and are arranged among classroom teachers and specialists as a result of repeated observations of the child's daily performance. It is important for the home and school worlds of the primary child to be compatable. For this reason parents were asked to express a preference for either open classroom or a traditional classroom environment for their children. As a result of a combination of parental choice and school recommendation, children at the three schools were placed in classrooms as follows: BURLEY 2 Kindergarten sessions a.m. and p.m. 1 First grade — traditional 1 Second grade — traditional 1 Third grade — traditional 2 First-Second combinations — open 2 Second-Third combinations — open BOONE HALL 2 Kindergarten sessions amjn and p.m. 1 First grade — traditional 1 Second grade — traditional 1 Third grade — traditional SHATSWELL 2 Kindergarten sessions a.m. and p.m. 4 Second-Third combinations — open 3 First-Second combinations — open Consequently this primary district has been composed of eleven open and seven traditional classrooms. Curriculum This year the formal physical education instruction time has been doubled so that each child in primary school has received one-half (H) hour of physical education instruction twice a week. For the first time our kindergarten children were also included in formal physical skills development lessons. The emphasis in this area was in skills development and nourishment of pride in personal growth and physical well being as well as 51 LU z o o CD Q z < -J LU < I > LU -J LJ u > LU LU O LU Qu O o H U LU l£l motivating the joy of physical activity. Competitive games were not stressed but were offered for those who were ready for them both physically and emotionally. Coach Welch and Miss Ellie Knowles have worked effectively to establish many extras in this area to individualize the instruction. It is with their coordination with Mrs. Sherr and Mr. Rogers that High School Open Campus students volunteered many hours of tutoring to Shatswell School children to motivate an interest that many children might not have had. As a result of math workshop during the summer of 1972 under the direction of Mrs. Mary Evans, Director of Elementary Education and Miss Barbara Beaman, primary teacher, the math curriculum in each of the schools has been clarified with the designing of a behavioral objectives skills list which has been used as the core and has been implimented with a multi text approach. Children began with many activities which promoted concept development through manipulating concrete materials. Simultaneously, they engaged in extensive oral expression of these concepts. Ultimately, they finalized their understanding with written articulation of the mathematical concepts and participated in a variety of practice activities to ensure that the facts remained for future use. Instruction in reading has been personalized so that each child has received the method of instruction and practice most suitable for him. Instructional reading has been accomplished through the use of Open Court, Programmed Reading, Barnell Loft, and S.R.A. materials. This year we have increased the amount of functional reading to solidify the instructional reading skills. If you had walked through any part of the three schools you would have seen children using their instructional reading skills independently or with friends to enable them to do many independent activities and projects in the areas of crafts, construction, cooking, science experiments, social studies field work, measurement, physical skills and music. Reading has been a necessary part of living, even in the primary grades. The children have been discovering that if they could read it, they could do it. Happily the philosophy of expression of individual gifts has overflowed into areas of special instruction. Recognizing its worth with teachers as well as with children has encouraged the development of a special program in music, at Shatswell School Mrs. Rita Holland, has designed and incorporated an individualized developmental skills program in music which combines singing, playing bells, autoharps and rhythm band instruments, reading music, orchestration and creating original pieces. Mrs. Holland's creativity has motivated much interest in music and has established a way for teaching music within an open classroom organization. * DIRECTOR OF PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES Mr. Joseph Battaglio Programs for the education of children with special needs came under special scrutiny this year. As the result of new regulations issued jointly by the Massachusetts Departments of Education and Mental Health, the responsibility for initiating programs for handicapped children falls squarely upon school districts in each community of the Commonwealth. What this - means essentially is that the relative permissiveness of the General Laws which allowed communities to implement programs at will has been replaced by specific guidlines and requirements which must be complied with by certain deadlines. Beginning with mental retardation, each school district by March, 1972, was accountable for submitting an appropriate program for each child who falls within this category. In Ipswich, the accounting procedure which was to precede the March report, and which encompassed an annual town census of handicapped children, was already complete. The mandatory provision to provide school programs for children so identified was already being complied with. The additional provision to eliminate segregating and categorizing procedures within such school programs is a long-standing policy in Ipswich. First attempts to integrate children with special needs into regular classrooms began approximately six years ago. Another major aspect of the new regulations — and one with strong financial implications for school systems — was the provision for extensive evaluation procedures for children with special needs. Components include: 1. An assessment of each child's current educational status. Required personnel: a specialist certified by the Department of Education (certified special education teacher). 2. A medical assessment. Required personnel: a physician, preferably to be a pediatrician. 3. A psychological assessment. Required personnel: a psychologist. 4. An assessment of pertinent family history including a home visit. Required personnel: school counselor, school adjustment counselor, school nurse, or school social worker. 52 Since all the components specified are contained within the existing pupil personnel framework in Ipswich, the implications of this feature of the regulations for our school system were minimal. The core evaluation team for the first evaluations (children in partially integrated programs) consisted of Mrs. Carol Barry, special education teacher; Mrs. Elizabeth Geanakakis, counselor and special education supervisor; Dr. Marsh, pediatrician; Dr. Gofstein, psychologist; and J. Battaglio, superintendent's designee. As a result of existing programs and policies, we had little trouble meeting the March 1st deadline as specified. Looking ahead, we can expect additional regulations to result from a new law (Chapter 766). This will apply similar requirements for school programs to meet the needs of children in all disability categories. In light of existing programs, it would seem that Ipswich has a head start in meeting the provisions of the new law. But a head start does not imply full compliance which must be reached by 1974. By that time we must implement programs for the special needs of all our handicapped children. Failure to do so will not only place us at odds with the law, but will also jeopardize reimbursements to Ipswich for five years. Under a new formula in the law, these reimbursements, which will total $79,167 for 1972, will reach 100 per cent of expenditures in excess of regular costs for each child in a special program. The following overview of existing programs and needs points up our position relative to the requirements of the new law: I. Mental Retardation A. Present programs: 1. Primary elementary — 3 classes 2. Intermediate elementary - none 3. Junior High School - one class 4. High School - one class. II. Emotional Disturbance A. Present programs - one class for one elementary district. B. Needs 1. An extension of the program to serve the Winthrop-Shatswell schools (Boone-Baptist) III. IV. 2. An extension of services for students at the secondary level. Physical Disabilities A. No formal programs. B Needs - a physical therapist (full or part-time) to provide individualized therapy to handicapped children K-12. Speech Handicaps A. one therapist to serve with speech impediments all elementary (total - 136 VI. Program children children). B. Needs - one additional therapist to provide services for children now on a waiting list in the elementary program, and to take referrals of students from the Junior-Senior High Schools. Specific Learning Disabilities A. Programs 1. At all elementary schools (Burley, Winthrop, and Shatswell - one person serves as SLD and reading consultant - see Remedial Reading) 2. Secondary schools - one learning disabilities specialist for both schools. B. Needs - one certified learning disabilities teacher to broaden existing programs. Remedial Reading A. Programs 1. One remedial reading teacher for the Doyon School 2. All other elementary schools (Winthrop, Shatswell, Boone, Burley, Baptist) - one specialist attempts to provide both remedial reading and SLD services 3. Junior High School - none 4. Senior High School - none. B . Needs - One remedial reading reacher for the secondary schools. VII. Health - coverage for all schools provided by three school physicians and three nurses (full and part-time) VIII. Psychological Services - coverage for all schools provided by one clinical psychologist for one-half day per week. Needs - extended time for current consultant. IX. Visual and Auditory Defects — specialized prescriptions for each child as needed. Includes tutoring, special transportation, evaluations and placements. Summary Ipswich can take pride in its leadership in the area of special programs for its school children. We must continue to recognize our responsibility to provide appropriate programs as new needs arise, and as new legislation dictates. * $* Ir^Tl The elementary schools are continuing to extend individualized learning programs in all areas of the curriculum. Teachers in a primary level summer workshop - an extension of in-service work during the school year - prepared a guide complete with objectives, resources, and record keeping device for all pupils and teachers in the primary units. Middle grade teachers are in the process of preparing a similar guide for grades 4, 5, and 6. Again this year, federal grants under Title III NDEA providing matching funds for improving science, mathematics, and music programs were obtained. A Title I ESEA grant has provided three instructional aides for the reading program at the Winthrop-Baptist Schools. Mrs. Rita Holland, Music Specialist at the Winthrop-Shatswell Schools, is receiving the cooperation of the Mass. Dept. of Education in developing individualization of the music program for open education. The initial steps in this development, presented at the Mass. Music Educators Conference in October, were enthusiastically received by the participants. DIRECTOR OF ELEMENTARY EDUCATION Mary M.

This program is in accord with recently published Guidelines and Curriculum of the Mass. Dept. of Education. Continuing the efforts begun last year, fourteen cities and towns in the area formed a collaborative to obtain a planning grant under Title III ESEA (innovative programs). A proposal was submitted and approved for a Common Concerns Collaborative on Open Education (C3OH) which will evantually provide resources, teacher education, and limited funding for the implementation of Open Education. Ipswich was involved in the proposal through the efforts of Henry Dembowski and Mary M. Evans. Marcia Fowler succeeds Henry Dembowski as a member of the executive committee of C3OE. This collaborative will afford Ipswich the opportunity of having expert assistance in developing outstanding educational programs for students. Harcourt, Brace Jovanovich, because of the high quality of reading instruction in the first grade at Doyon School, has extended the pilot program to grade two. The publisher supplied all new basic material as well as consultant service to the teachers at no cost to the town. It is encouraging to note the interest in the arts that has been generated by special as well as classroom teachers. These special teachers are to be commended for the scope of their offerings. The addition of one staff member has had an impact on the quantity as well as the quality of the physical education program. The facilities, however, for a really comprehensive program at the elementary level remain totally Inadequate. We have continued as part of the North Shore Regional Teacher Aide Training Program held at North Shore Community College. Six Ipswich residents attended the required courses during the summer of 1972 and are completing the required practicum of seventy-five hours in elementary classrooms. In submitting this annual report, which is my last as Director of Elementary Education, to you, the citizens of Ipswich, I wish to express my sincere thanks to all of you who counselled, advised, and supported my efforts toward quality education for the young people of Ipswich and to express the hope that your concern will continue. * ENROLLMENT CHART * Grade K Doyon Burley Shatswell 55 37 38 Boone Hall 41 Baptist Winthrop Junior High Senior High TOTAL 171 Grade 1967 K 71 Nongraded Primary 1 190 2 188 3 202 4 196 5 188 6 203 7 187 8 191 9 191 10 189 11 135 12 122 P.G. 1 Sp.

Weatherall, Chairman Dr. Robert Goodale William C. Hickling, Jr. Frederick Winthrop, Jr. Costos Tsoutsouras Andrew Connors William George 1972 was a year of action for your Conservation Commission in fulfilling its charge of preserving the Town's natural resources and improving the environment. Some of the highlights follow: To provide additional protection to the Dow Brook reservoir, the Commission initiated and with the Town meeting approval purchased 67 acres at the head of reservoir. The Commission also applied to the Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources for self-help funds from their "Self Help Program". Final approval has been received and 50% of purchase price of these lands will be reimbursed to the Town treasury. Dedication of the property was held on April 29 in conjunction with Earth Day. The Town again was most fortunate through the efforts of the Commission in receiving gifts of two parcels of land. They were the Tom Foley parcel on Jeffrey's Neck Road and the Dorothy (Harrold) Green property on Peatfield Street. The latter property, located on the Ipswich River, is being landscaped and will be used as a canoe landing and passive recreation area. Back taxes due on the Peatfield Street property were paid to the Town from the "Conservation Fund". The deeds to these properties were properly executed and now Town property under the management and control of the Conservation Commission. To facilitate the development of the Peatfield Street property-razing the old Harrold house and landscaping - a dance was cosponsored by the immediate community and the Commission at the "K" Club in June to raise funds. Needless to say, the dance was an immediate sccess. It is anticipated that this dance may become an annual event. In July the U.S. Soil Conservation Service fulfilled its contract with the Commission in completing the Town of Ipswich soil survey. In July, Mr. Robert Morehouse and Don Fuller, representing the SCS, delivered 20 copies of One of Ipswich 's most beautiful natural sights (Ipswich Today) the soil survey. This soil survey which delineated Ipswich soil types and lists their capabilities has been given to various town boards. The survey, along with its interpretative maps, will be indispensable to all town boards in their decisions involving land use planning. The Regional Field Service Group of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design fulfilled its contract with the Commission through delivery in June of their completed study of the Ipswich River. The study was addressed to the following five ofjectives: l.To preserve and if possible upgrade the river ecologically. 2. To improve the appearance of the riverbank. 3. To discover possibilities for long-range protection of the river banks against abuse and over development. 4. To correct areas of deterioration without ignoring the historical importance of the river and many of its features. 5. and to plan further recreational use of the river and its surroundings by the inhabitants of the Town. Already some of the findings of the study have been put into effect on the downtown area and the Peatfield Street river property. Both the report and the models of the downtown area have received considerable attention. Another project which has received considerable attention was the printing of the brochure entitled "Preliminary open space plan - Ipswich Conservation Commission 1972". The brochure was delivered to each resident with the Town's annual report. The brochure reflects the Conservation's thinking as well as many town people on the subject of open space. Goals are to preserve water resources, preserve the greenbelts, provide recreational areas and save the tax payers money. During the year several letters of recommendation were mailed to the Board of Selectmen on possible dredge and fill violations as related to the Hatch Act. The major change during the year was the passage of Legislation which combined the old Hatch Act and the Coastal Wetlands Act. The new Act is now known as the Wetlands Protection Act of 1972 becoming law October 16 of this year. The new Act contains provisions of the 56 two old laws with several additions and now directs the local town conservation commission to hold hearings and make recommendations on applications for dredge, fill, or alterations of wetlands as qualified under the Act. One of the more enjoyable aspects of our work was the planting of many thousand beach grass seedlings at Crane's Beach as part of the dune restoration program. We especially wish to thank the Town's people who participated in the planting and, particularly, the school biology class and the Girl Scout organization. Through the Conservation Commission the Essex Conservation District has made available $500 Matching Funds for the Dune Restoration Project. One of the most important projects of the year which t we hope will be finalized by this year's annual town meetings is passage of a zoning bylaw establishing a Wetland and Water Conservancy district. A professional planning firm — Nash Vigier, Inc. was contracted to draft and prepare the bylaw. Purpose of the bylaw is to provide "that land in the Town of Ipswich subject to seasonal or periodic flooding not be used for residence or other purposes in such a manner as to endanger the health or the safety of the occupants and to protect the community against costs which might be incurred when unsuitable development occurs in marshes, flood plains, and other lowland areas. Numerous other activities took place during 1972 but one of the most pleasant was the receipt of the Essex County Soil Conservations District board of supervisors certificate of achievement which was awarded to the Conservation Commission for their efforts in maintaining open space and recreational management. In April members Jack M. Israelson retired from the Board and Mrs. Joan Cudhea resigned to move to San Francisco, California. New appointments made by Mr. Conti and approved by the Board of Selectmen were Andrew Connors and William George. The Ipswich River after a snow fall. (Ipswich Today) Members of the Commission welcomed the new members and all the members of the Commission wish to thank all the citizens whose tireless efforts to preserve the town's natural resources made this a most successful vear. 4 t * 57 The Year of the Red Tide o >- o > < LU Aerial view of Castle Neck looking north.

Terrell, Chairman Edward Nag us Andrew Gianakakis Edward Paquin Joseph Kmiec Joseph Lauderowicz Henry Minichello Arthur Moon, ex-officio member The shellfisheries of Ipswich have undergone several intensive ordeals during 1972, but out of it has come a better understanding of the Town's shellfish resources. In the past the harvesting of soft shelled clams became so intricately woven in the life of the Town that its existence was considered as accepted fact, if not almost a "right" of being a coastal town. As with so many of our natural resources, it was always there and thus it was assumed it always would be there. Several factors changed all that in the year just past. 58 When a large part of the soft shell clam industry was destroyed in the Middle Atlantic states from Hurricane Agnes during June, the North Shore became one of the major suppliers for the industry. With the price of a bushel of clams rising by as much as 100%, Ipswich tried to meet the demand, and consequently many more and especially younger diggers were attracted to clam harvesting. In fact, through August there had been almost 200 commercial permits issued to Town residents and nearly 1,500 non-commercial permits. It was evident by the end of the summer that some of the commission's past work was beginning to pay off in terms of a sustained yield in spite of increased clamming pressures. It had not been possible to determine the extent of effectiveness of past programs because as Labor Day approached, another tropical storm now had bad news for the North Shore Shellfisheries. As Hurricane Carrie gave a glancing blow to the New Englad area, the environmental conditions became exactingly correct for the so-called "red tide". For the first time in the Town's history, all shellfish areas were closed to harvesting, and what started earlier as an economic boom became overnight an economic nightmare. The details of the incident need little further explanation, because they have been all too vivid to those involved. Nevertheless, out of that chaos there have been some good and favorable lessons learned by the Ipswich community. Perhaps the most important is that no longer can its natural resources, including the shellfisheries, be taken for granted, rather they must be considered as delicate entities requiring diligent attention by all Ipswich residents to protect and preserve their vital qualities. In this way not only will the resources' future be insured, but also the Town's future at the same time. In the past year the Ipswich Shellfish Advisory Commission continued its mussel and algae programs by luring two young men to hand rake algae from several clam flats where it had grown quickly during July and was beginning to suffocate the clams, especially seed clams. When the red tide hit, about a dozen out of work clammers were hired with town and state funds for five weeks to clear the Beach Reef of blue mussels, which had spread to cover about 30% of the flat. Earlier in the year the commission hired Dr. Johnes K. Moore, an oceanographer and marine biologist from Salem State College, to serve as a consultant on biological problems, such as water analysis, plankton and clam populations. The commission hopes to work with Dr. Moore in seeking federal funds for future shellfish investigations. During Olde Ipswich Days the commission set up a display on the South Green to show the commission's activities and exhibit local, aquatic species. It was viewed and appreciated by many, especially because of the free, steamed clams. An effort was made to update the antiquated shellfish rules and regulations, and upon approval by the Selectmen new harvesting limits went into effect. Beginning in 1973 shellfish licenses will have to be displayed on outer clothing in holders provided by the commission. The commission also hopes to continue distributing metal "clam rings" to individuals who have difficulty in determining the size of a two inch clam. Aerial photography has been attempted by the commission and it is believed that this will become a valuable tool in recording the changes that occur in shellfish areas. It is hoped that such information will allow better estimation of clam flat sizes, water currents and general changes in topography. * Shellfish Constable, Arthur Moon, and little girl examine pile of blue mussels removed from the Beach Reef clam flat. * Shellfish Constable, Arthur Moon, and biologist, Dr. Johnes K.

Clow, Boston and Nantucket) SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY DAY COMMITTEE John Updike Seventeenth-Century Day was held on Saturday, August 5th, this year - the tenth such occasion since 1948, and the first since 1968. Months of preparation by the sponsor organizations, the Historical Society and the Garden Club, were climaxed by a sunny and successful day. Twelve hundred tour-ticket purchasers, and many more visitors, were attracted to the town. Net profits, after expenses, of over six thousand dollars were applied to the announced project of renovating the exterior of the old South Church, now the Ipswich Youth Drop-In Center. This renovation, now completed but for the front doors and the dome of the cupola, leaves some funds still to be devoted to "Maintaining and improving the historic features of Ipswich." Suggestions are welcomed. In addition to the customary events and exhibits on the South Green, young people of Ipswich presented a pageant on the rocks of Meetinghouse Green, and a concert of seventeenth-century music was performed at Castle Hill under the direction of Thomas Kelly. Town Manager Conti and his special assistant Robin Carter spared no efforts in preparing the town for the influx of visitors; the police and highway departments especially should be thanked for their fine co-operation. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE President, Richard Banville Vice President, Louis Marchand Treasurer, Herbert Brack Secretary, Jane Bokron Encouraging community involvement has led to a very successful year for The Ipswich Chamber of Commerce. With some 25 social, civic and church groups participating "Olde Ipswich Week" was a huge success with the many thousands of visitors enjoying Ipswich from its beaches and old homes to historic customs and home-style cooking, including our famous Ipswich clams, to a congenial town with all its ethnic groups gathering together. A huge success was the closing-off of the downtown Market Street for old fashion Block Dances. We had 3 different types of dancing, namely; Greek, Polish and Square Dancing, enjoyed by the many, many people. The Chamber of Commerce Booth on Market Square in 764 hours of operation from July 1, 1972 to September 2, 1972 compiled the following statistics: 6256 cars stopped and asked for information 17,157 people involved in information 30% asked for information on beaches and recreation 20% asked for information on historic homes 25% asked for information on dining places 10% asked for information on lodging 15% asked for miscellaneous nformation The Chamber of Commerce was honored by the Essex County Tourist Council for its efforts to promote Ipswich, with a most limited budget, with remarkable results.

Spenser stands next to a green head fly trap. THE ESSEX COUNTY MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT equally unfortunate that this cut back should coincide with one of the wettest years ever experienced in the Robert W. Spenser, Superintendent area. O to O > o u X LU to to LU The year 1972 was a rather exasperating one for the Essex County Mosquito Control Project. Mother nature in providing abnormal railfall to the area also provided ideal conditions for almost continuous breeding of mosquitoes. The woodland pools which normally dry up during mid summer produced many consecutive broods of the insect summer long. The cool, cloudy, wet weather extended the longevity of the mosquitoes and species which ordinarily arc considered only as night-biters were on the wing during daylight hours because of the everpresent high humidity. Aside from the natural obstacles the Project was inadvertently caught up in the austerity program at state level. While the monies expended for mosquito control are assessed in return upon each of the twenty-two municipalities enrolled based on equalized valuation and land area, they are originally incorporated in the overall state budget. By failing to appropriate the full amount for the Essex County Project, the Great and General Court decreased the Fiscal 1973 budget by forty thousand (40,000) dollars or approximately twenty-three (23) percent. The direct result of this action was a reduction in personnel employed by the Project and a corresponding cut back in services rendered during the last six months of 1972. This reduction will also be in effect during the first six months of 1973. Because of the expense of operation and maintenance of heavy equipment the program of permanent work such as drainage ditching, and water management was severely curtailed and many of the planned activities necessarily postponed. It is indeed unfortunate that the Essex County Mosquito Control Project through no fault of its' own should be forced to cut back on its' services at a time when the public is demanding a greater effort. It is In spite of the above mentioned obstacles the Project is pleased to report the following activity in Ipswich during 1972: Prehatch or winter ice dusting -33 areas Application of larvicidc to open water - 64 acres Brushing out along brooks and streams - 600 feet Upland ditching with power equipment - 2,206 feet, off Candlcwood Road. Salt marsh ditching with power equipment - 26,132 feet, off Townf Farm Road. Fogging to control adult mosquitoes on June 16, 23, 30; July 7, 21 , 28; August 4, 11, 18,25. We wish to thank the residents of Ipswich for their continued cooperation and understanding and barring any further interference with our fiscal appropriations we look to 1973 as a year of further progress toward the reduction of the mosquito problem in Essex County. 62 The formula for Revenue Sharing is as follows and the details below will explain the 'practical working of Revenue sharing. DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Office of the Secretary REVENUE SHARING ALLOCATIONS Availability of Entitlement Data The data used by the Department of the Treasury in calculat- ing revenue-sharing allocations for each State government and unit of local government pursuant to the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972 (Public Law 92-512) for the first entitle- ment period (January 1, through June 30, 1972) has been provided to each government. Collective data for all of the units of government receiving revenue-sharing funds will be available from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. This data has been compiled by the Bureau of the Census, and definitions of each data element are provided on this notice. If recipient governments have reason to believe that there are errors in this data, relative to these definitions and effective dates, they should so inform the Department in writing and provide the Department with whatever substantiating evidence is available to them no later than February 12, 1973. If the Department has not been so informed before that date, the data elements published will be determined to be correct and as such will constitute a final determination by the Department. Upon receipt of any written response from recipient govern- ments the Department will, as timely as practicable, substantiate or correct all data questioned and the recipient governments will be advised of the Department's findings. Those findings will include a final determination of the recipient government's revenue sharing entitlement unless, within 60 days from the date of those findings, tire recipient government advises the Depart- ment that there may still be a possibility of error, and submits additional evidence and documentation supplying the basis for their view. Any such additional evidence and documentation submitted will be carefully reviewed and a final determination will be made by the Department regarding the entitlement. In order to assure equitable treatment of each recipient the books will be kept open until all evidence and documentation submitted during the time periods referred to above have been reviewed, data determined to be erroneous corrected, and necessary adjustments made. There is one instance in which the Department has determined that the census data may not provide for equitable allocations. For cities and towns of under 500 in population, the per capita income is subject to substantial statistical error, and the Depart- ment has, therefore, determined that it will use the per capita income of the county area in which such unit of government is located as an estimate of the per capita income of that unit. [seal] Samuel R. Pierce, Jr., General Counsel. DATA DEFINITIONS FOR INTRASTATE ALLOCATIONS TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS POPULATION Population means the total resident population for an area as determined by the Bureau of the Census in the 1970 Census of Population. The census was conducted primarily through self- examination. Each person enumerated in the 1970 census was counted as an inhabitant of his usual place of residence. This means the place where he lives and sleeps most of the time, which is not necessarily his legal residence, voting residence, or domicile. Persons without a usual place of residence were counted where they were enumerated. The data collected is dated as of April 1, 1970 and it relates to boundaries of enumeration districts as they existed on January 1, 1970. AGGREGATE INCOME Income or aggregate income means total money income as defined by the Bureau of the Census in the*1970 Census of Population and Housing. Information on money income for calendar year 1969 was collected in a 20 percent sample as part of the 1970 census. Total income is the sum of: 1. Wage or salary income. 2. Nonfarm net self-employment income. 3. Farm net self-employment income. 4. Social security or railroad retirement income. 5. Public assistance or welfare income. 6. All other income such as interest, dividends, veterans' payments, pensions, unemployment insurance, alimony, etc. The figures represent the amount of income regularly received before deductions for personal income taxes, social security, bond purchases, union dues, medicare deductions, etc. Receipts from the following sources were not included as income: Money received from the sale of personal property; capital gains; the value of income "in kind" such as food produced and consumed in the home or free living quarters; withdrawal of bank deposits; money borrowed; tax refunds; exchange of money between relatives living in the same house- hold; gifts and lump sum inheritances, insurance payments, and other types of lump sum receipts. PER CAPITA INCOME Per capita income of any unit of government, as define'd by the Bureau of Census in the 1970 Census of Population and Housing, is the mean income computed for all persons in that unit of government. Per capita income was computed from calendar year 1969 money income data which was collected in a 20 percent sample as part of the 1970 Census. It is derived by dividing the total income of the sample by the total population of the sample. ADJUSTED TAXES The adjusted taxes for a unit of local government, as derived from the special revenue sharing survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census in 1972, are the total general purpose taxes exacted by the unit of government in fiscal year 1971 excluding taxes for schools and other education purposes. Total general purpose taxes include : 1. Property taxes - County, municipal, or township taxes on property, real or personal, measured by value. 2. Sales taxes — County, municipal, or township taxes, either general or specific, on goods and services, measured as a percent of sales or receipts, or as an amount per unit sold. a. General sales tax. b. Gasoline tax. c. Liquor tax. d. Cigarette and tobacco tax. e. Public utilities tax. f. Other. 3. License, permits and other taxes — County, municipal, or township taxes not included in items 1 and 2 above (e.g.: poll taxes, license and inspection charges on occupations, and busi- nesses, animals, vehicles, etc.) a. Income payroll or earnings tax. . b. Motor vehicle licenses. c. Fees retained from tax collections by officials of the unit of government. d. Other. General purpose taxes do not include receipts from service charges, special assessments, interest earnings or fines. School taxes are tax revenues of the unit of government which are allocated for school purposes. They include taxes for current capital and debt service purposes as well as amounts collected for the governmental unit by the county or State acting as a collecting agent. The general formula for computing adjusted taxes is: Adjusted taxes=total general purpose taxes minus school taxes. When appropriations from the Governments' general fund to the school system form the only basis for determining school taxes the following formula is used: School taxes=school expenditures minus (school intergovernmental revenue plus school service charge revenue). INTERGOVERNMENTAL TRANSFERS OF REVENUE Intergovernmental transfers of revenue are amounts received by a unit of government from other governments in fiscal year 1971 for use in performing specific functions or for general financial support. This amount is derived from the special revenue sharing survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census in 1972. The figure includes grants, shared taxes, contingent loans and reim- bursements for tuition costs, hospital care, construction costs, etc. Intergovernmental revenue does not include amounts received from sale of property, commodities or utility services to other governments.

It also resulted in intensive study and work by the Ipswich Shellfish Advisory Com- mission. In testing key clam flats in the Town it is not known whether the Red Tide will reoccur or not, but the continuing research will aid the Town and the State Public Health Department in analyzing any future occurrence. Gonyaulax tamarensis, marine dinoflagellate RED TIDE ORGANISM is\r The organism, which irresponsible for the so called Red Tide is a minute plant composed of a single cell and can only be seen with difficulty using a microscope. Its ^scientific name is Gon- yaulax tamarensis and while some scientists maintain it is an animal, most place it in the plant kingdom. It belongs to a group of organ- isms called dinoflagellates which literally means "great Whip" because they possess two long, whip-like, appendages used for movement. One flagellum, or whip, surrounds the animal in a groove and probably acts as a stabilizer, while the other trails behind for propulsion. The organism possesses chlorophyll which can be yellow green to yellow brown, but which can carry on photo- synthesis as would most any plant. Thus, while the organism has some animal characteristics (movement) it also has plant characteristics (photosynthesis) . The organism has been recognized for many years in Canada as the causative agent of para- lytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) but there are no past records of its occurrence along the Massa- chusetts coast. If the environmental conditions of temperature, salinity and nutrients are just right, then the stage can be set in the ocean for a "bloom". This is a phenomenon where many billions of cells are produced in a relatively short time span and may lead to a discoloration of the water, either reddish or yellowish, because of the super abundance of the organism. Clams and other shellfish become the vehicle through which paralytic shellfish poisoning can be transported to man and other animals. Shellfish that have two shells, such as soft shell clams, quahogs, scallops, mussels, etc., feed by taking in sea water, straining small pieces of food from it, and expelling the water. In this manner the Red Tide organism can be ingested by shellfish, which then use the organisms as a source of nutrition. Even though the Red Tide organism contains a very powerful, toxic substance, most shellfish have built up an immunity to it and therefore are not affected by it. Nevertheless, when the shell- fish are eaten by birds and mammals, including man, the toxin can be very harmful to these individuals. * ABOUT THE BACK COVER * The back cover depicts an interpretation of the Red Tide by Artist Frank Wilkish. fli ./« A J.
